No Magic against the Cheetahs

While the Cheetahs will look to their inspirational inside centre, “Magic” Rob Ebersohn, to provide the spark against the Sharks this weekend, coach John Plumtree will not send his wizard, star signing Juan Martin Hernández, into the fray just yet.

Reports from Durban suggest that the Argentinian maestro lacks match fitness and conditioning, having come of a month-long break following the completion of the Northern Hemisphere club season. The Sharks coaching staff would rather not risk their bank-breaking pivot breaking down by playing him too soon. Hernández will make his debut against the Leopards in Rustenburg next week.

Monty Dumond’s solid showing against the Bulls last weekend creates somewhat of a selection poser at flyhalf, now that Guy Cronjé is available again after serving a one-match suspension. The latter is a far more excting option but, given that the team may end up having to do without the services of first-choice goal-kicker Rory Kockott – the scrumhalf has been cited for a knee to the face – Dumond’s superior goal-kicking experience may just swing the vote. Then again, if Plumtree is feeling really adventurous, he may opt to start with both Cronjé twins and leave the goal-kicking to Riaan Swanepoel.

In other good news, Waylon Murray came through a club game unscathed over the weekend and would probably be a good bet to make the 22 for the Bloenfontein trip.
